Funny how weddings bring out the crazy in people.  Sometimes we don’t need to hear what people think is the truth.  I’m sorry that those words had to come from your mother.  Hang in there, you know what you want!

I totally sympathsize, but to just throw in looking at it from your mother’s perspective, do realize that it must be hard to feel that your daughter might be settling and NOT saying anything about it. Not saying that you ARE or that it’s appropriate she feel that way, but I can understand the need to speak up if I were a mother and felt that way about my daughter. And at the very least she’s supportive in the sense she’s NOT acting out in ways that I read about so often on the bee!

Since it IS your mother and you want to find harmony in all this, I might try and schedule more time for you and Fiance and mom to do stuff together (or things during which you can leave strategically to give Fiance and mom more one-on-one time) that way, she can get to know him (and love him) better.

I’m still trying to figure out how to deal with family with out going nuts. My Future Mother-In-Law jumped on my last nerves this weekend and my Fiance is calling her this week to tell her she is no longer invited to our wedding. Weddings always bring out the crazy in everyone and there doesn’t seem to be any way around it. I’m sorry your mother’s words hurt you and I want to think that she didnt mean anything facetious by it. Sometimes moms can’t help but to tell us exactly how they feel but if she still wants to support you and your decision then that’s, to me, a sign that she really does support you. Her opinion about your Fiance is just that, her opinion. Just try to take for what its worth and enjoy planning the rest of your wedding.

I’m sorry that your mother is feeling that way. It can definitely add some stress to the mix. Maybe you guys just need to talk about it more, understand why she feels that way exactly, and then explain why you may disagree, or how wonderful Fiance is.

Future Mother-In-Law is driving me a little crazy, being pushy about some things she envisions having in our wedding, and it just totally isn’t us, it’s always hard when they are paying for things too.

I guess even if she may feel that way, or is having trouble getting over your ex, you will have plenty of time to show her why you are not settling, and why this is the man you want to spend the rest of your life with!
